Crayon Roll

My Kyle got invited to his first birthday party! That means mom (ie: me) either has to go out and buy some overpriced toy or create something from an already large fabric stash. With gas prices the way they are right now I’m making the gifts. 

There are a lot of crayon roll tutorials out there. A LOT! Well, let me add to it with one of my own.


3 pieces of fabric cut 13 x 5
1 piece fusible webbing 13 x 5
1 piece of ribbon cut 24 inches
This pattern uses a ¼ inch seam allowance.
Level: Beginner

Pick the fabric you want the pocket attached too and iron the fusible webbing to the wrong side of it
Fold your pocket fabric in half hot dog wise (that’s long ways for all you over 4 year olds) and iron flat.

Pin the pocket fabric to the fabric with the webbing so that the sides and bottom raw edges are touching. Your pocket fold should be on the top. 

Starting 1 ¼ inches from the side sew a line. Remember to back stitch at the top to secure the thread! Sew a line every inch until you have 11 lines.

Next fold the ribbon in half and pin it right in the middle of one side of the pocket fabric piece. Take the last poor unused piece of fabric and place it on top of the pocket piece, right sides together. Make sure you pin the ribbon out of the way! Sew along the edge leaving a 3 inch gap at the bottom for turning. Clip the corners and turn it right side out. Iron flat.

Sew along the edge of the crayon roll as close to the edge as you can and you’re done!

Now admire your work. 

Look at that cute crayon roll with all the rainbow coloring crayons in it. Just ready to go! These are great for little ones starting school, travelling, or gifts like this little crayon roll is to become! 

And look at the cuteness all rolled up with its big floppy bow!
